A Norwalk man has been indicted by a Huron County grand jury, accused of a pair of felonies.

Ryan J. Justice, 32, of 33 N. Hester St., this week pleaded not guilty in Huron County Common Pleas Court to one count each of burglary and tampering with evidence. Both felonies are in connection with an April 28 incident.

“Mr. Justice fled from officers after the home invasion. … The homeowner was home,” Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Richard Woodruff said.

Longo told the court Justice knew he was wanted on a fines-related warrant and “ducked behind a truck when he saw a cruiser.”

Justice, whose $50,000 bond includes a 10-percent provision, is prohibited from being on the victim’s North Pleasant Street property. The defendant told the judge he is about $1,100 behind in child support and has been in jail since mid-January.

He has a July 23 trial scheduled.



“Mr. Justice fled from officers after the home invasion."
Why? Isn't he proud of what he does for a living?


Although what Justice did how in the world is his bond only $25,000 less than the girl that was part of beating a boy half to death? And a Norwalk detective beats his girlfriend and gets away with it? what exactly is the point of having a justice system if they aren't gonna prosecute according to the crime and not according to who you are?


Yes he is behind in child support but he has been paying it and seeing his son all this year. I thought he was starting to get his life together but I guess things happen. Its not right that they let everyone else out on a OR bond yet he has a $50,000 bond. He just got hired in full-time to his job prior to this. One day he will learn. Not sticking up for him because no doubt what he has done is wrong, but he could be out working and paying child support with visition with his son till his sentencing. SMH
